Is the Future of Oracle DBAs Cloudy, or Brighter Than Ever?


So you are your company’s newest (or oldest) Oracle DBA, and that means you’ve just finished getting back up to speed after the 2016 holiday season (which probably meant scads of patches and upgrades to your systems while everyone else was enjoying eggnog with their families). You’ve spent your spare time between crises to be ready to move to Oracle 12c Release 2 as soon as it’s out … and now your CIO and CTO are bugging you about moving everything to the Cloud to help reduce costs, and you’re still trying to figure out what the difference is between CAPEX and OPEX. It’s enough to make you wonder if your Oracle DBA role will still be around in 2017!

If this sounds even a little bit like your career today, then be sure not to miss my upcoming webinar on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 at 1:00 PM CST (2 PM EST, 11 AM PST). My presentation – DBA 2.0 Is Dead. Long Live DBA 3.0! – will present my vision for the future of the Oracle DBA role in 2017 and beyond.

Registration is free but filling up quickly. And don’t forget to send me some feedback on my forecast!
